OCT 9, 13 .. ALASKAN TIDAL ' BORE TIDES ' ..

I BEGAN this post last Saturday .. October the 5th .. and I could NOT publish it .. so here it is .. a day-or-two late and a few dollars-short ..

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

Here in the United States .. south of the City of Anchorage located in the State of Alaska .. there is a body-of-water called the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet. 

The vertical tidal fluctuations in the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet are among the most radical in the world.  The vertical tidal fluctuations in the Bay of Fundy in Eastern Canada between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia on the Atlantic Coast are generally considered to be the most severe and the most well-known.  The Bay of Fundy has had vertical tidal fluctuations of fifty five (55) feet as measured from high tide to low tide!

When the out-going tide collides with the in-coming tide .. once in awhile .. from time-to-time .. a phenomenon called a 'Bore Tide' occurs.  Usually a 'Bore Tide' will occur during an especially severe vertical tidal fluctuation often at the time of a full moon.

This phenomenon is also called a 'Tidal Bore'. 

'Bore Tide' followers consult their 'Tide Tables' and try to predict when they will be able to see an especially good 'Bore Tide'.  From time-to-time local newspapers will actually advise us of a possibly significant 'Bore Tide'.
 
Really significant 'Bore Tides' tend to be very rare and difficult to witness.  Patti has been watching out for them for almost fifty years as she has driven along Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet.

Yesterday .. Friday the 4th of October .. 100% ABSOLUTELY AND TOTALLY UNEXPECTEDLY .. Patti and I saw the most magnificent 'Bore Tide' that we have ever seen!

Patti and I were stopped at a vehicle turn-out along the Seward Highway at milepost 95.3 and I very 'idly' snapped the below photograph.
